Best Hentai site evAr!
I unblocked ads for them. There are few sites for whom I do that.
Slashdot is where I heard of them - and why I put them on my weekly reading-list.
It sucks that they're going to most likely be replaced by outfits such as OMGUbuntu.
What is holding Microsoft's stock up?
I am assuming: NSA subcontracting.
Your comment gave me cancer. Also, are you allergic to Reddit?
Video? All I see is a big yellow box with a little circle and a blue "f" in the middle. That's why I prefer reading articles to videos.
To a certain degree, the downside is that this can lead to a big old circlejerk (also-known-as groupthink - also-known-as, colloquially from the pleasant times of 1930's-40's Germany; zeitgeist).
But by-and-large, I have been on slashdot from before the moderation system. I remember the debates. I didn't agree with the reasons for moderation. But after CmdrTaco made those changes, things did get better, and I really do agree that peer moderation, though not perfect, is the best way to deal with fanbois and trolls. (and ESPECIALLY astroturfing - which has been a HUGE problem, here on slashdot, historically).
yes - this is a real issue - and ARCHIVED data that is important DOES need to be "spun up" and refreshed to new media.
If it's hard drives, yes. If it's optical media. . . well that depends. Because some optical media just plain degrades over time. Some is written in special proprietary formats (like Apple's early implementations of CD+R) that you're going to have a hard time reading with CURRENT equipment.
If your data is archived to tape, and more than 10 years old, I'm afraid you're fucked.
. . . IMO - it's almost certainly the book/teacher.
True; but STILL . . . I went for a few years coding without really having much of a need for math beyond Algebra. Then I started getting into some interesting projects. I had to force myself to learn calculus. (realizing that: - a lot of basic calculus is already embodied in programming structures - it's just expressed differently in mathematics. Already having a background in programming gave me an insight to calculus that made it a LOT easier to understand, than when I struggled with pre-calc in High School).
nor do they really have the power to do jack didlysquat about it if they DID care. Really.
. . . well, to be fair, the same contingent of "geniuses" took us to war in Iraq based on a "1% chance" that Saddam Hussein had WMD. . .
Economists didn't give us good "costs and benefits" to changing taxation policies with the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and deregulation of the economy. We got vague platitudes about things like 17% annual growth, and creation of 4 million jobs per quarter (which was later, quietly revised down to something like 100,000).
These policy changes never achieved anything near that, and, in fact, collapsed the fucking economy.
And yet, nobody holds "Austrian" Economists to this same high standard of proof for their whack-a-doodle theories. And when it comes to the idea that investing in sound management of industrial emissions and natural resources - we hear the same claims from these fortune-tellers, that doing so will "ruin the economy". IMNSHO - that's evidence that we should do exactly the opposite of what the Economists say.
If you have insurance you pay the medical expenses for smokers, alcoholics or drug users . . . who are presumably WORKING, and on an employer-provided plan.
It's the NON-WORKING drug-users that I have a problem with. Gee, I wish I had the luxury to sit around all day, play video games, smoke crack, and have someone else work their ass off to pay for it.
The road to ruin is always in good repair, and the travellers pay the expense of it. -- Josh Billings
